    Water and brewing

    Cool so just to be sure!! Carbonate =1 mg/l Calcium = 23.8 mg/l Magnesium = 6.2 mg/l Phosphorus = 1/2 mg/l Iron = 1mg/l As the iron is 12ng/l im assuming its a much lower value

    Water and brewing

    Some of the quantities of this report are based on averages for example if my sulphite was between 26 to 28, then i stuck it down as 27 as a yearly report is the best i could find. The caco2 is stated as 85 therefore i derived the Hc03 from that and i was probably wrong with my calculation of...

    Sorry i should have stated a different spring water as that one was still water were i was thinking a better quality but probably the same results as i have another that has a bicarbonate at 340 so id obviously run into the same problem! Im going for the RO system indefinatly but will take...

    Water and brewing

    Ive been working on this water report and turns out a lot of information is on the website but i could not get anything on the minerals; calcium, magnesium and pottasium. I also used a converter which im not sure is correct but i multiplied the caco3 (85) by 0.6 which should result im my...

    Water and brewing

    I will it makes more sense then paying 100 for a sample that may change or not be accurate! I can pick up a RO system for 150! On my next batch whats the oppinion on using spring water? That way i will have all the contents on the bottle and i can tweak it with the basics that mcKnuckle added...

    Water and brewing

    Im working on it, i was already iffy about the ph tester, although i have one im yet to figure out the calibration which im sure is not a huge job! I contacted my water company and they do not have this information but will possibly get back to me god knows when! Another thing i learned is this...

    Water and brewing

    Cool guys ill look into all that info and let use know how i get on. Ill get a water report in the morning then see what my options are and if there is a way i can make the problem easier, like as mcKnuckle said by reducing alkaline by acid phosphoric acid or so on it might be easier then adding...

    Water and brewing

    Im looking into getting a full water report and i can tell excactly whats in the tap water and i know what i need to adjust my only step next would be ratios of minerals to reach these levels. Im sure there are a lot of videos on correcting the water, i guess i should have figured this out sooner!

    Water and brewing

    Well i wont use the bottle water for sure! Would adding gypsum in this case help the situation or would it be pointless?! MLHBS has both these acids so it might be worth doing my extra research to ensure i get this right. My first brew was an ipa extract and turned out pretty well, although i...

    Water and brewing

    Ive touched on this subject before but still a bit confused. I understand there is information given online for the ingredients to your local water company and its minerals etc. I have been using tap water on my few brews and some have been ok and some bad. Should i use spring water instead...
